Honestly, I can't remember much but ones I liked from old school are NGE, Cowboy Bebop, Cardcaptor Sakura, some of the Bleach OP songs, and Gundam SEED.
Posted 5/27/13
Bleach's first OP was pretty awesome. So was Bebops.

I'm not sure how Bebop isn't top in it's catagory. Also I love the paranoia agent opening. For the visual and the cheesy song, I like Macross' original theme. I also liked most of the FMA:Brotherhood openings, they set up the show really well.

Remember this is MY personal list. Therefore, the song you like may or may not be there.
Plus, I gave it an honorable mention.

I'll delete this once the Op sees.

Any chance to add the qualifications of "insert songs" can't be leaving those out.

nvm I can't delete hmm... someone report this post?
